Taking action to combat health inequalities in Lambeth’s Portuguese community in three hours

Taking action to combat health inequalities in Lambeth’s Portuguese community in three hours

Lambeth is a very diverse community, with an estimated 1 in 6 residents across this Borough speaking Portuguese as their native tongue. The Council has identified that the Portuguese speaking community is at risk of health and social inequalities, leading to poorer health outcomes for this group. Health Foundry in partnership with consultancy Unboxed hosted an open conversation bringing together stakeholders from the community, the health sector and public bodies to hack ideas for improving the health and wellbeing of this population.

This is a guest post by Graeme McCubbin from digital design agency Unboxed.
